Welcome to the official online home of FRC team 2708, Lake Effect Robotics. 2022 is going to be a rebuilding year for our team after years of disappointing cancellations due to COVID. Our goal is to "Work together as a team to build a simple but competitive robot and continue our record of positive community involvement by building strong partnerships which will raise the profile of science and technology in the Kingston and global communities."

Lake Effect Robotics is the FIRST Robotics team for the Limestone District School Board. Membership is open to all high school students in the LDSB, from grade 9 - 12.

Open House, Oct. 3, 2022

Interested in joining Lake Effect Robotics?
